High school student Yuuto Sakuraba does not conceal his hardcore otaku nature or the fact that he is heavily into moe drawings from an artist named Sayane. At school, he is seated next to Kotone Kashiwagi, the school idol who shows distaste toward otaku culture. One day, however, Yuuto stumbles upon Kotone in the otaku store he works at, discovering that Kotone is also an otaku!

This chance encounter brings the two unlikely friends closer, Yuuto promising that he will keep her passion a secret. They soon have secret meetings to discuss their common interests. But what Yuuto doesn't know is that Kotone Kashiwagi is, in fact, the moe artist Sayane!

The main male is an absolute idiot and is one of the "weakest/beta" characters I've ever seen,. y'know when it comes to a confession and the girl says "I've never really thought of it that way, I don't even ...

Preliminary (11/84 eps)
Okay while the art isn't terrible everything else about this story is. The story is boring with the only real tension coming from the hidden identity. Everything else is really slice of life but with no possible twists this story becomes very bland. The love aspect makes me want to gag. The only character that the story even focuses on past the superficial is Kashiwagi and only enough to know that she loves to draw, is socially awkward, and is afraid of being unpopular (despite fact she is only shown to have two friends). The main thing that upsets me is the protagonist. The protagonist ...
